I'm a Staffordshire-based wedding photographer with a natural, colourful style - I like photos to tell the story and emotions of your day, in all their beautiful colours!
I'm friendly, approachable and relaxed, which helps put you and your guests at ease for beautiful, natural photos.
All of my packages include full day coverage, so the full story of your incredible wedding is captured. I also offer the option of a second photographer to cover groom prep if he's in a separate location, and to capture multiple angles and perspectives.
I love travelling and I'm happy to offer bespoke packages for those of you that are further afield.
Drop me a message above if you're interested in booking me for your big day.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the price of your service?
I offer 3 wedding photography packages: THE PHOTOS: Full day photography £900. THE PHOTOS + THE ALBUM: Full day photography + fine art album £1225. THE WORKS: Full day photography + album + choice of fine art frame OR 2 x duplicate mini parent albums £1400. *Please note these are 2020 wedding prices - visit my website for 2021 wedding packages.
What does the wedding package include?
All 3 packages include the following as standard: - Full day coverage from bridal prep to first dance - Carefully edited photos in my unique style - Personalised USB stick containing all high-resolution photos - Password-protected online gallery
Are you able to travel?
Absolutely! I love to travel so please get in touch for a bespoke quote if your venue is outside of Staffordshire and the West Midlands.
What is the charge for travelling?
This depends on how far I am required to travel and whereabouts the venue is, as it will determine whether I need to book an overnight hotel stay. Please get in touch for a tailored quote.
What style of photos do you take?
My photography is a wonderful mix of candids and posed. I love documentary style photos that tell the story and capture all of those beautiful raw emotions of your wedding day, but I also believe there is still a place for posed photos of the bride & groom and their close family & friends - plus they look fab on your walls!
What kind of equipment do you use?
I only use professional level Sony full frame cameras, zoom & prime lenses and lighting equipment.
What's the delivery time for photographic report?
Delivery of your fully edited digital images takes 4-6 weeks following the wedding day. USBs are ordered once the final gallery has been sent to you. Albums can take a few more weeks due to design and production time.
Do you send all the photos taken?
No I don't think you would appreciate photos where you're caught blinking! There will be occasions where I don't quite capture the moment as I intended, or my camera hasn't managed to focus in time so it is a little blurry - this is why I only edit and send photos that meet my high standards.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I am a single photographer but sometimes have an assistant with me on the day. I can provide a second shooter for an additional cost if you are keen to get a variety of angles and groom prep photos (if at a different location to the bride).
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
Although it is highly unlikely that I will be unable to make it on the day (and I haven't missed one yet), I understand that accidents can and do happen! In this case I have a fantastic network of photographers that I can call upon, and if for any reason you are unhappy with my replacement, I will provide a full refund.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
As the producer of the photos, I own the copyright and do have the rights to publish any photos I take - for me this means to my website and social media. If for any reason you don't want me to, however, you can request this and I will honour your wish. I may occasionally request to publish in magazines or blog websites as a 'featured wedding', but I would always contact the couple beforehand to make sure you are happy for me to do this.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
I charge per event, but can tailor this if your event is shorter or longer than what I class as a typical full day wedding.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Of course, just let me know what your requirements are and I will create a bespoke package for you.

Danielle · Married on 25/09/2020
Charlotte photographed my wedding and I couldn't be happier with the shots she got, she managed to capture details you wouldn't think about but I'm so happy she did as now I can relive the day with all the details from the photos we have. Charlotte took not only amazing posed photos but also caught so many natural photos which showed the love and emotions of not just me and my husband but of all our friends and family who shared our day. Would highly recommend Charlotte, such an amazing and skilled photographer!Sent on 20/05/2019
Tanya · Married on 20/03/2020
We got married just before the lockdown started in Britain, so it was all a little stressful in the final days leading to the big day. Charlotte was amazing, she stayed in contact with us the week leading to the wedding, she was there on time on the day, and ready to go. Her presence was so calm and you hardly knew she was there while while you were busy. For the group photos, she organised people really well. She was just brilliant for the whole day and I would strongly recommend her for your special day. Her communication after the wedding has been to very efficient. She emailed the photos quickly, and the book looks brilliant. For the natural and staged photos she got everything we wanted and more. Amazing photographer.Sent on 29/04/2020
Captured beautiful memories of our special day
Me and my husband are over the moon with our wedding photos!Sent on 14/05/2019
We had an engagement shoot with Charlotte before the wedding and this really put us at ease and got us used to being in front of the camera...it also felt like we knew her by the time the wedding came around!
On the wedding day she was professional and friendly, and got all the photos we wanted and more. She made sure she photographed all of the little details that we'd put so much effort into. For our bride & groom photos, she knew exactly where to go and the photos are stunning! She helped us with posing as well, so we didn't look awkward.
Couldn't recommend her enough - Charlotte worked so hard on the day and captured so many amazing memories for us.
